I started with an architect diploma in France with a thesis "Living between earth and water" in 1997. I've been living in Latin America since 1998, working on humanity projects, investigating on earthquake resistant constructions made with natural materials. I mostly lived in Guatemala for 12 years and as I was working on sustainable habitat for communities with low incomes, I learned about Permaculture. I knew the people from the IMAP (Meso American Permaculture Institute) in Guatemala and I cooperated with them designing one of their buildings in 2002. Then I met Bernard Alonso, a Permaculture teacher from Quebec and I went to visit is farm in 2004. In 2009 I created a french association to help diffuse Permaculture and eco-sustainable ways of living in different places on the planet. I participated to a PDC with Steve Read and other one I organized with Bernard Alonso. And I presented my curricula to finally become a Permaculture teacher at the end of 2009.
I keep organizing workshop on Permaculture and eco-buildings in Central America and I work as a Permaculture designer wherever needed.
Our association is www.assokokua.org
8-27 of April 2013, we co-organize a PDC+ with Bernard Alonso in Honduras
